Default confused about ground distribution block

I am embarrased that I have to ask this question...........but I have found the root of one of my issues........it is this ground block!

I have accessory grounds routed to this distribution block, with one (brown) lead providing ground from my reducer. I have tested this block and only have ground on the terminal that the brown wire is actually attached to? I figured if ground was attached anywhere on this block, all other distribution screws would also get ground.........but that isnt the case.

this ground distribution block didnt come with instructions.....so is it necessary for me to connect actual ground to a specific screw?

lol, I know, this sounds crazy.......but this is where I am at and would value some feedback!

No. you need a ground wire jumper to each screw

OT, Todd's right. There are some blocks out there that are set up the way you thought this should work, but that's not one of them........sorry.

Todd, I am not being critical of you............I am laughing at myself!

I have been checking all my terminations and such..........to find this ASSUMPTION on my part was the root of many issues.

THANKS FOR THE INFO............time for me to get out there and piggytail this distribution block!

I learned the same lesson on my blue Yami. I bought an "isolation block" rather than a "distribution block".
